Would we have played as well in 2006 and made the GF had we won in 2005? I have a sick feeling the wheels would have come off completely in 2006 instead of 2007 had we won that year. Also, would we have played as well in 2018 had we won in 2015? I feel we did as well as we did in that finals series because most of the squad had felt the sting of losing in 2015. But I'm straying from the original question of hosting the GF. Just a few things to think about.1991 maybe. Hawks had beaten us in WA in finals already that year. I still think we'd have lost whether in Perth or Melbourne. LOSE
1992 we beat the cats at the ground the game would have been played at. WIN
1994 the cats wouldn't have come close regardless of where the game was played. WIN
2005 the swans ran us close in the QF and arguably should have won. I think we'd have won in Perth by the skin of our teeth. WIN
2006 who hosts? Sydney who beat us in the QF or us who finished minor premier? WIN in Perth. LOSE in Sydney.
2015 we'd have done them in, perhaps as clinically as in the QF. It would have been their third Perth trip in four weeks. WIN
2018 IIRC is was windy with a bit of rain had the GF been played in Perth but we still would have won in Perth. WIN
We'd be on five or six flags if the higher placed team hosted the GF imo.
